Gramps,

Why do I cry when I feel the spirit?

BJ, from Utah

Dear BJ,

To be in the presence of the Holy Spirit is a highly emotional experience. His spirit speaks to our spirit. When we get in touch with our spiritual selves so that the spirit rather than the desires of the flesh dominate our thinking and our feelings, there is the recognition that we are standing on holy ground, in the presence of Deity. In that sacred environment we tend to be overcome with emotion.
